Eagle Romeo did not hesitate to choose France.

Eagle Romeo made correct predictions for Premier League, La liga, CONCACAF, Copa America and Tokyo Olympic.

France seems to be a stronger side this match.

France enters their Group D opener as clear favorites to bag three points – and that’s hardly a surprise as defending champions. Look for Mbappe and Benzema (if cleared to play after a muscle injury) to stretch an overmatched Aussie back four with their well-meshed partnership, feeding off Antoine Griezmann, who has had a rollercoaster year but is still elite at finding space behind the front two and picking the right pass.

If the Aussies can weather the early storm, this could yet be a cagey contest, but there’s so little threat for Australia in the final third – and it’s tough to see Arnold’s side generating enough chances with a lone striker up against the French back three. Once a 0-0 is off the table, there’s no obvious countermove for the Aussies.

France vs Australia: Other Predictions

According to sportskeeda, France are blessed with heaps of footballing talent but will be missing the services of a few key players going into the FIFA World Cup. With Karim Benzema ruled out for the duration of the tournament, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud will need to step up and shoulder the goalscoring burden.

Score prediction: France 2-0 Australia

This France side is vulnerable, but against Australia, the challenge won't be stiff enough to cause problems. France are a slow, plodding side that will create chances, but not at an obscene pace, choking the life out of the ball and leaving Australia feeding on scraps.

Australia's recent World Cup history makes for ugly reading, and they'll have a mountain to climb here.

The Socceroos will have to rely on taking advantage of set-pieces, which they excel at, but still, it's difficult to bet on those kind of chances. In all likelihood, the favorites will roll here, and look to round into form for the more challenging stages of this competition.

France vs. Australia: Team News

France are heavily depleted. Starting midfielders N'Golo Kante and Paul Pogba are both missing from the tournament, having struggled with long-term injuries since the summer.

Defender Presnel Kimpembe and attacker Christopher Nkunku were both sent home after being named in the squad and Benzema will play no part in the finals because of a thigh injury.

Goalkeeper Mike Maignan (calf) is not in the squad and centre-backs Raphael Varane and Jules Kounde have missed chunks of the season for Manchester United and Barcelona respectively.

As well as having one of the weaker squads in the tournament, Graham Arnold's side have many key players under injury clouds. Starting centre-back pairing Kye Rowles and Harry Souttar, as well as attacking players Martin Boyle and Ajdin Hrustic, have all missed large chunks of the season.

There is particular concern surrounding Boyle, who may have to be withdrawn from the squad due to his knee injury. Marco Tilio has been training with the side in light of this and will replace him in the squad, with either Craig Goodwin or Awer Mabil being his direct replacements in the starting side.

In a bold move to curb the reigning champions, Arnold is considering moving to a back three to combat the France attack. This could see winger Craig Goodwin deployed as a left wing-back, and Milos Degenek, Bailey Wright or Thomas Deng drafted in as a third centre-back.
